Skyprince's hometown: SHAH ALAM ( 25 km from Kuala Lumpur-- lots of roads, highways, housing pics ) !

Shah Alam

Shah Alam is a city of 350,000 , located just 25 km outside Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. It takes 40 minutes by both RapidKL bus and Komuter train from downtown KL . I really would like to share about my town with everybody. I took all these pics since the past 2 weeks.

Shah Alam is a slow-paced ''middle-class'' town compared to Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Petaling Jaya ( where many upper-classes live ) etc and traffic here is always smooth.


Okay babe .. let's start the journey . Wroom... Wroom




Entering Shah Alam city from highway




Inside Shah Alam





Commercial area at Section 9 ( note: This is NOT the city centre of Shah Alam )



This is 5-star Concorde Hotel which is very close to my house My family always have buffet lunch there.






Typical roads in Shah Alam city











downtown Shah Alam seen from a residential area












Residential area










Me with Shah Alam lake as backdrop









a typical Malaysian family house




Many houses in Malaysia have this











A typical recreational park in Shah Alam

Pleasant tour with beautiful scenery , it seems to me that you have made many good friends like Mobasher of Bangladeshi and the above Korean friend Mr Yun ,maybe one day I would find the opporunity to revisit KL and we become kind friends , taking a group photo in front of the Petronas twin towers ! Are you sure ?

Loool that will be super kewl cmoon , just inform me before you come and I will prepare a good itinerary for you. It is boring and unmeaningful to visit a country without being accompanied by locals

What is ur nationality by the way

Thanks dude WOW how do you know those places I thought Shah Alam is very unpopular even among Indonesians... Oh yea for sure I can bring you to Permai Hill a.k.a. Little Genting the view there is super fantastic BUT the place is only accessible by car and very unknown to many Kuala Lumpur residents.

Malaysia is beautiful! Shah Alam is nice. Putrajaya is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever visited. KL is awesome as usual. Thanks Skyprince!

: I go to Wet world theme park every month to play with my lil brother
In fact I just checked the size of Shah Alam Mosque and officially, it's the 2nd largest mosque in Southeast Asia-- your Istiqlal Mosque in Jakarta is bigger and can accommodate 50 000 ++ jamaahs vs Shah Alam's 30 000 ++

Yea Shah Alam is a quiet town, unlike the bustling KL. But many of the suburbs of KL ( with some exceptions ) are relatively quiet, especially newly-built areas.

Thanks Dhakaiya , I have so many Bangladeshi friends here and I have to say that they are very approcheable and extremely friendly and very easy to get along with The Parliament Buildings in Dhaka are so spectacular and inspiring ! I want to visit Kuakata and the world's longest sea-beach in Cox Bazaar too

I prefer street level pics 1000000000000000000000 times more than aerial skyline view, because this gives a real picture of a city.

hey skyprince just want to know how do people get around in shah alam?

last time there i took rapidkl bus U528 from Pasaramakota to Hentian Pusat Bandar Shah Alam then took a walk to the mosque and walked back to the bus station. then going back took rapidkl bus U529 (it went around the suburbs of Shah Alam, i think passing a university campus) to the Shah Alam KTM train station and took the train back to KL Sentral

Hi hunie anyway .. most young ppl like me simply travel by RapidKL bus ( only MYR 1 for one-day unlimited rides ! ) to get around Shah Alam .... but most working ppl here have their own car.

Err......from Pasaramakota and KL Sentral station... it's not U528... but U80 bus

A great journey but I gotta say that you only saw 5% the whole of Shah Alam's magic attractions There are many many secret hilly areas where fantastic scenery of the city can be spotted -- and also you missed the lake-- there are certain areas of Shah Alam lake with fantastic heavenly views !
